Representative sleep disorders represent sleep apnea and snoring. Although researches to diagnose sleep disorders as solutions for these problems are going on, the original researches only diagnose and measure sleep disorders but ones to find out the reasons are not activated much. Therefore, to reinforce this, this paper suggests sleep disorder improvement system based on multi-sensor. To design the system proposed in this paper, the entire system's structure was found and data's flow was planned. To ensure that the system works, mobile application and user interface was built based on Android. To test the results on accuracy of sleep disorders improvement system based on ontology using multi sensor built and planned in this paper, a scenario was written. As a result of testing inference results' accuracy changing factor values of sleep disorders following test scenario, proposed sleep disorders improvement system's accuracy was checked.

대표적인 수면장애로 수면 무호흡증과 코골이가 있다. 하지만 기존에는 수면장애 측정과 진단만 이루어지고 그 원인을 파악하는 연구는 미비하였다. 따라서 본 논문에서는 이를 보완하기 위해 멀티센서를 기반으로 한 수면장애 개선 시스템을 제안한다. 본 논문에서는 제안한 시스템을 설계하기 위해 전체 시스템의 구성을 파악하고 데이터의 흐름을 설계하였다. 설계한 시스템을 구현하기 위해 사용자 인터페이스 및 모바일 애플리케이션은 안드로이드 기반으로 구현하였다. 본 논문에서 설계 및 구현한 시스템의 결과의 정확도를 테스트하기 위해 테스트 시나리오를 작성하였다. 테스트 시나리오에 따른 수면 장애 요인 값을 변화시키며 추론 결과의 정확도를 테스트 한 결과 제안한 수면장애 개선 시스템이 정확하게 동작함을 확인하였다.
